Overall I'd give Canada a 4. The far north is pretty much inhospitable for me, while cities in the prairies have winters that are pretty cold as well. The west coast is not bad, though my favourite would have to be the Windsor-Quebec City corridor which has a nice seasonal range in temperatures and conditions.

1 out of 10.

Too much of Canada suffers with a subarctic/boreal climate at a latitude that sees our relatively mild weather in the UK, and much worse of course as you go further north.

The "1" is because there are some areas with barely acceptable climates such as where Toronto is, even though winters are still too cold. And the west coast parts are mild but boring with no summers.

Many excellent climates in Canada, especially on the west coast and in Eastern Canada (Newfoundland for example). Places like Montreal and Toronto are decent too. Some parts of intertior Canada loses points being too sunny/hot/cold. But overall the pickings are quite good.

3. Some nice summers in southern regions/coastal BC. Interior southern BC has some year round climates that aren't too bad.

Much too cold though overall though, with a long, drawn out winter.

Some great skiing though.

You said southern Ontario's winters are too warm for you. Yet you would give northern Scandinavia and the alaskan panhandle 10. even though these two places have warmer, if not equally comparable winters.

At least some parts have decent summers (Toronto, Osoyoos) and some others have mild winters (Vancouver)
But Canada doesn't have much climatic qualities for my tastes.

Maybe he's referring to these places in Scandinavia

Kiruna - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Karasjok - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Rovaniemi - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Also he said ex(cluding) the panhandle..
